Since my apprenticeship, completed with trainings in the traditional spanish art of guitarmaking with the famous guitarmaker Josť Luis Romanillos, I have been engaged in developing and building different styles of classical guitars, gypsy-swing-guitars (Selmer/ Maccaferri-Style) and arabian lutes (oud or al'ud).

The direct contact to the musicians is essential for my work, because all instruments are hand-crafted indiviually according to the musical and stylistic wishes and needs of the musicians.
All wood that I use for my instruments I select and treat very carefully to ensure the individual beauty in sound and design.
The protection of the threatened rainforests is an important interest of my work, so
I aim to use wood that is certified according to the standards and criteria of the forest stewardship council ( fsc*), which means that this wood comes from an environmentally and socially compiliant forestship.
